St. Loos, Sept 20.—The Minnesota
delegation arrived this afternoon and
. their headquarters are in rooms 50 and
152 of the Southern, the most fashiona
ble hotel in the city. "It is the largest
delegation which ever represented . the
state in a National encampment," said
J. 11. Drake, of St. Paul, to the GLOBE
' reporter. 'We had a pleasant trip
here, eventful only for the good time
we had." The Minnesota delegation
held a caucus to-night^ the meeting last
ing nearly two hours. The encampment
organized with the appointment
of an executive committee consisting of
•J. H. Drake, of St. Paul, chairman* 11.
A. Castle, St. Paul: Maj. R. R. Hender
son, St. Paul, and E. C. Babb, Minne
apolis. -The main object of the caucus
and of the executive committee is to
push Judge John 11. Rea, of Minneapo
lis, as the next commander-in-chief.
"The following for him was enthusias
tic.*" said Mr. Drake. "We have re
ceived strong encouragement from a
■number of leading states since leaving
-St. Paul which have caused us
to feel encouraged over Judge
Pea's chances. The feeling has grown
so strong among the other previously
announced candidates that the opinion
is general here at the hotel to-night that
Judge Rea's chances as a dark horse are
excellent.-"-" The Minnesotians will hold
another meeting to-morrow evening at
which the matter will be discussed.

"that state will probably reach 350.

procession of grip-sacks has poured itself
out of the Union depot. From 0 o'clock
onwards there was not a lapse
of half an hour without a train,
and the local reception committee,
although its numbers had been rein
forced, found it impossible to handle the
people that crowded upon them. There
were times when chaos reigned su
preme, and when even the awful rush
of the knights templar conclave was
more than surpassed. Up to 3 o'clock
.this afternoon the official reports to
K headquarters of the local committee
showed that over 20,000 ex-soldiers were
already upon the ground, and as
every train brought in more spectators
than Grand Army men, it was figured
out that fully 50,000 strangers were in
the city. This does not, probably, rep
resent more than one-third of the num
ber that will be here by to-morrow, for
the delegations from many of the prin
cipal states, including Illinois and
Pennsylvania, as well as big excursion
trains, are yet to arrive at this writing.

is a serious question. Not a room, not
even cot space, remained at any of the
hotels after 10 o'clock, and the clerks
were driven well nigh to distraction by
crowds that besieged the desks and
begged and pleaded for even a place to
lay their heads. Every lodging house
within a radius of a mile of the old court
house is pretty well filled up.and plenty
of people have been glad
to secure accommodations two
or three miles away. The
rush, in fact, has upset all calculations.
As an example accommodations had
•been ordered in advance for 1,500 Cali
fornians. and when the train came in,
what with wives and children and
friends they* were 2,500 strong. The
same, in a greater or less degree, is true
of almost every delegation that has put
in an appearance. To make matters
worse, the rain of to-day has so thor

lin which the rank and file of the veter

pects of their occupancy is anything but
inviting, aud the men who a score of
years ago would have been perfectly
contented with existing conditions, are
hardly willing to add to the infirmities
of advancing age by sleeping upon the
damp ground. The executive commit
tee, however, lias not allowed itself
to get rattled, and its members
to a unit express-themselves as con
fident that provision can be found for
all that come. An immense crowd
waited patiently for over two hours in
the union depot to-night for the special
train carrying Gen. Lucius Fairchild,
the commander-in-chief of the Grand
I Army, and the members of the national
staff. .When at length the train made
its appearance and the general alighted,
the cheers were loud and long con
tinued, and it was with difficulty that
the reception committee made a path
through the vast concourse of people to
the carriages in waiting. There * was

Which Has in View the Purifica
tion of Cook County Politics.
Chicago, Sept. 20.—At a meeting of
the reformed board of county commis
sioners President Aldrich this afternoon
proposed a code of civil service rules
for the administration of the
county government which would
smash the existinc political machines
to splinters and give a .-.:. life
tenure to present incumbents of subor
dinate offices,if they continue to hon
estly discharge their duties. He.stated
that the same set of rules would be in
troduced at the city council meeting by
Aid. Hamline. The scheme provides
for the establishment of a civil
service commission, which will be
equally divided between the two
political parties. Provision will
be made by the commission
for the competitive examination of ap
plicants for office and for promotions
for merit or seniority in ollice. All ob
ligations on the part of appointees to
contribute to political funds will be re
moved. A board of examiners to test
the fitness id' applicants for office will
be appointed, 1-and'the main feature
is that no officer, club, or
other person employed in any
department shall be discharged from
office on account of his political opin
ions and punishments are provided for
the infringement of any of the provi
sions before mentioned. The most
stringent rules are those drawn up for
the purpose o&doing away with the sys
tem of-blackmail for the swelling of po
litical funds hitherto worked by heads
of departments on their subordinates. A
long and animated discussion ensued
upon the matter among the members of
the board. " The rules were ordered
printed and referred to the public
. service committee.
The Possibility of His Breaking
Down Causes Some Speculation
About the Vice Presidency. f
Special to the Globe.'■'■ .:.>.•• ....
Washington, Sepl. 20.— con
tinued serious illness of Gen. J. C. Black,
commissioner of'" pensions, is exciting
the gravest apprehensions among his
friends. During the past year it is gen- j
erally conceded that the general has
failed in health very much. Naturally
of a strong and rugged constitution, he
has been literally worn out j with pain
and suffering, .llis wounded arms seem
constantly charged-■ with rheumatic
pains, which thrill like electric shocks
his entire body and rack him as one tor
tured by fiends. The original shocks
of the wounds received in battle would
have killed an ordinary man; but he re
covered and has lived an active,-useful
life. But, in the later years the attacks
have recurred more frequently, and his
health has become impaired by reason
'of mere attrition from pain. The conse
quences of his possible demise have been
seriously considered during the past few
days. . -yyy
amongst old soldiers of the Democratic
faith that they will demand the nomi
nation of Gen. Black for the vice presi
dency, and that their desires will be
respected. But, if he should not live
and be in sufficient health to make tlie
race, who should they present? Their
next choice would be Slocum, of New
York, but. he comes from the same state
as the president, and that would be out
of the question. Col. Morrison of Illi
nois, would probably be their second
choice. Tlie distinguished commerce
commissioner is Vigorous and sturdy.
He is well known and has an enviable,
record as a statesman. Next to him
stands Vilas, of Wisconsin, while the
friends-of Gen. Weaver,, of lowa, are
not Inactive in pressing the claims of
their leader. There is a great deal de
pending upon the life and future cont
dition of Gen. Black, It is hoped that
he may recover his normal strength, but
his physicians will not give that hope.
They do say that it is believed by them
that the general will soon be again at
his office, but they are easeful not to
give much hope of his continued health-
Two Trains Wrecked.
Ottawa, Ont., Sept. 20.— ex
press train which left Ottawa this after
noon for Montreal on the Canada At
lantic railroad, was wrecked three miles
below Eastman's Springs, caused
by the expansion. .of the rails,
due to the heat from some burning

ceived the danger and slowed up. The
cars were not upset, but simply tore up
the track and stuck in , the ground,
where they caught fire and were
burned. There were 150 passengers on
board, none of .whom were injured.

Philadelphia, Sept. 20.—1. D. For
rest, who said he had been proprietor
of the Park hotel at Billings, Mont., for
some years, called upon the chief of de
tectives to-day, and stated that a woman
with whom he had lived for sixteen
years as man and wife had left Billings
last August with a man named Joel P.
Thompson, who was at one time a
boarder at the hotel, but who, by reason
of sickness and his destitute circum
stances had been taken care of by Mr.
Forrest and his mistress- and finally
given a positron in the establishment.
Last August, Mr. Forrest states, he was
absent from Billings for several weeks,
during which time* the hotel was de
stroyed by fire. Upon his return his
wife, as he had recognized the woman,
complained or' illness and was sent by
him to St. Paul with $2,200*-in bank
drafts," which, he says, she converted
into cash and married Thompson, who,
with the woman, was finally traced to
this city by means of the formers
trunk. Upon Mr. Forrest's arrival
here he located the pair and had them
arrested, when the woman acknowl
edged that she still had $1,700 of the
money left. At the hearing this after
noon, however, Mr. Forrest declared
that he did not des're to. prosecute
either of the parties and that he had de
cided to take the woman back to Mon
tana with him. The whole affair cre
ated quite a sensation "in the police
court. Forrest is thirty years ot age,
ten years younger titan the woman.-

Special to the Globe.':. :_]'■'..'■_; '.\ ■'.-_
Sioux City, 10., Sept. 20.—This fore
noon Arensdorf, under indictment for
tiie murder of Key. George C. Haddock,
was surrendered by his bondsmen and
for a short time was in the custody of
the sheriff. The reason was that Will
iam Letch, one of the bondsmen, desired
to dispose of some property, and could
not give a clear title while the lien of
the bond was upon it. Joseph Borsch,
another bondsman, withdrew for rea
sons known only to himself. Gin a short
time a new bond for $50,000 was se
sured,with C. F. Hoyt, James Junk and
P. Selzer as sureties. Arguments on
the motion for a new trial in the Munch
rath case have occupied the entire day.
A very exhaustive argument was made
for the motion by G. W. Argo, and op-
posed by States Attorney Marsh' and
M. I). O'Conuel. There are fifteen
counts in the motion and each is treated
at length. It is the general impression,
However, that the motion will be denied,
and in that ease sentence will be passed
to-morrow. A good share of the day has
been taken up in stating objections to
jurors, who were retained after having
admitted that they had contributed to
the fund raised by the Law and Order
league for the prosecution of the case.
It was also claimed that the indictment
was not in proper form, the defect be
ing serious enough to affect its legality.
Judge Severance's Recent De
cision Regarding Unsealed
Weights and Measures Kicking
Up a Coin mot
Special to the Globe.
Mankato, Sept. 20.— sealer of
weights and measures for this county
is just now overrun with work in cor
recting false weights and measures. He
finds many of the weights and meas
ures decidedly deficient; especially so
are the liquid measures. The greater
proportion of quart measures examined
are fully a gill too small. This revolu
tion of the existing measures is a result
of the decision of Judge Severance in
the recent case of Bisbee, Oleson and
Boynton vs. Mary McAllen. which bids
fair to become an important case in the
judicial annals of our state. This case
was an action of goods sold and deliv
ered and to recover on a book account.
Hon. P. A. Foster, who appeared "for
the defendant, set up the defense <of
unsealed weights and measures. - This
defense was sustained by Judge Sever
ance, who decided statutes
accounts for goods sold could not be en
forced if- at the sale they had been
measured by unsealed weights or meas
ures. As a result of this decision deal
ers are having their weights and meas
ures tested and sealed. This will un
doubtedly cause a great saving to the
consumer, as tlie numerous corrections
made by the sealer clearly indicate, and
as this change is likely to be carried
out throughout the state, Mr. Foster
merits no small degree of gratitude
from the consumers for the position lie
has taken in this matter.

Knoxviele, Term., Sept. 20.—For
some reason the full particulars of the
mutiny of the convicts at Coal Creek
cannot be obtained. The Knoxville
Iron company is very reticent
about the affair. Inspector Bur
rows returned from the mines
this morning and says the troubles have
been settled. On last' Thursday, at the
dinner hour, tlie. convicts refused; to.
leave the mines. They claimed
that the food was so bad and
the tasks so heavy that they
could no longer endure it.and that they
would remain in the mines until better
fare and more humane treatment were
promised. The guards would prom
ise nothing, and the convicts re
fused to move an inch. Every
effort was made to remove them to the
stockade peaceably;' but they held out
against threats and entreaties
with all the determination born of
desperation. * Then, it -is said, the
guards fired into them, wounding : sev
eral negroes, but at any rate Friday
afternoon they shut off the ventilation,
and on Saturday afternoon the convicts
yielded to the men. The closing
of the ventilation . shaft drove them
to the mouth of the mine, and there
they crowded around the opening, fight
ing among themselves for trout
seats. They endured the most
excrusiating torture before giving ue,
and it is said several of them were en
tirely exhausted when they surrendered.
Mr. Burrows states that everything is

Reported Among the Blacks of

Houston, Tex., Sept. 20.—Word was
brought in last night that an insurrec
tion was imminent among the' blacks in
Matagorda County.••• The sheriff of Mat
agorda county sent a courier to Sheriff
Ilickley,: of. Brazoria county, ask
ing for immediate assistance to
put down an* insurrection. The
courier stated tliat over 200 negroes
were under arms in Matagorda, and the
excitement among the whites was great.
The trouble arose over, an- attempt of a
colored constable to. arrest a white man
who resided on Caney creek. The
constable was found dead, ly
ing in . the creek. The negroes
believe that white men of the vicinity
murdered the constable because lie had
a warrant for one of their number.
Later reports last night stated that
Sheriff Ilickley had raised a posse of
fifty mounted white men and started for
.'. Matagorda while the sheriff of Matagorda:
was en route to the scene of the trouble
with 100 mounted men. At noon to-day

Attempted Murder and Suicide.
New York, Sept. 20.—A Middletown,
N. V., special says: The northern
suburb of this town, near the type*
factory, was aroused at 2 o'clock yester
day morning by a woman appearing on
the street in .• her night-dress, stained
with blood, and screaming "murder."
The woman was Mrs. Sarah Henderson,
widow of William H. Henderson, of the'
Eighty-seventh New York volunteers,
who died-while in the service. -She
draws a widow's pension of $12 per
month," and lives with her young son at
the scene of the tragedy. There has
lived, with the widow Henderson for
twelve years past an unmarried veteran
named Walter C. Brown. The family
subsisted" on his pension of $8 per.
month. He was somewhat eccentric
and melancholy, but was never thought
of unsound mind. The family retired
as usual Saturday night, Brown occupy
ing a bed, and Mrs. Henderson a lounge
in one room, her . son sleeping in the
room adjoining. Mrs.. Henderson says
she was awakened shortly after 3 by the
explosion of a pistol close to her . face.
The bullet cut its way through her hair,
splintering her comb and lodging in the
lounge. .By the flash of the pistol she
recognized Brown standing over her,
revolver in hand. As she sprang to her
feet a second shot struck her in the left
shoulder,, inflicting a severe wound.
Her screams aroused her neighbors,
who gathered, and a policeman entered
the room which was the scene of the at
tempted murder, and where Brown had
remained. The officer found him lying
dead on his bed with a knife in his hand
with which he had cut a frightful gash
in his throat,' severing the "juglar vein
and causing instant death. The "deed
was evidently premeditated.

Nihilism In Russia—The Af
ghan Trouble -- General
Foreign Intelligence.
By Cable to the Globe.
-London, Sept. 20.— a quiet vote
could be taken at present among the
Tories, ministers, members of parlia
ment and voters, the result of which
would not get out into the world, prob
ably a large majority would unhesitat
ingly vote to abandon coercion, and cease
using force in Ireland. The Tories are
already sick of the hopeless game. Not
that they intend to abandon the policy.
.They have put themselves in Mr. Bal
four's hands, and the game once.begun
must now continue until the Irish pawns
are swept from the board, or until
they block the way to Balfour's
moves, and call' •'checkmate" on
him. It is, however, dawning
upon the Tory mind in general, that a
series of farces similar to the so-called
trial of Mr. O'Brien will be fatal to the
standard : of- the law and expose their
policy to the honest condemnation of all
fair-minded people. If, on the other
hand, license to speak were allowed to
Messrs. O'Brien and Harrington and
others, it would simplify matters vastly
and produce fewer of such trials as the
world was treated to on Saturday. This
would be far better from every point of
view for the government. The league
is determined to be heard and its leaders
will speak, coercion or no coercion.
• Consequently the government will have
outlier hands, and what a poor show
ing it is for a fair-minded power like
England when it is known that con-.
|Evictions are secured and sentences pro
nounced on a • parcel of Irishmen for ex
ercising that liberty boasted of so; by
'Englishmen, that of free speech.
Among the Liberal party a marked
effort is working to raise the Irish ques
tion to the level of the Bulgarian
atrocity, .and both .in .-. speeches and
| newspaper, editorials" the changes are
being rung on the comparison between
the two. "The government is called"des

The Russian Government Still Try
ing to Stamp It Out.
London, Sept.' 20.The minister of
public instruction at St. Petersburg has
recently made a discovery, the object of
which will require most active vigilance
on the part. of his lieutenants to follow
up and uproot.'/; He has learned that in
the province of Iver nihilistic doctrines !
are spreading with great rapidity, and
that the Russian youth of this province
are becoming fast imbued with the icono
clastic spirit of the revolutionists. Iver,
although only a short distance from the
capital, has been made the receptacle of
political exiles from St. Petersburg, and
now they number a large percentage of
of the population. That nihilism should
spread, and produce a hot. bed, as it
were, of anarchists, in a province which
is flooded with its professed followers, is
not strange.. The Russian nihilist of the.
better sort is a refined, educated man.
It fact it is among the higher class -hat
the doctrines of this creed flourish best,
and philosophers, sophists, soldiers and
students are numbered among its ranks.
The young men of Iver have been taken
in hand by these cultivated men, who
have been able to present their ideas in
the most pain table shape, and the conse
quence is that they have succeeded in
their endeavors most fully. Since the
discovery by the minister of public in
struction of this state of things in Iver,
the government has exercised the most
stringent surveillance over every town
in the province. Numbers of the exiles
will be transported to other places, and
scattered among other provinces. Strict
search is being made for all kinds of in
cendiary documents, and quantities
have been confiscated by the govern
ment. The youth of the province who
are suspected of being converts to nihil
ism will be strictly watched, for the
government is aroused.
A Frontier Outrage.
Paris, Sept. 20— The following de
tails have been received concerning the
shooting incident on the French-Ger
man frontier; On Saturday morning a
party of five sportsmen and four beaters
were following a path on French terri
tory seven yards from the frontier when
a person standing behind a clump of
trees on the German side, eighty- yards
from the frontier, fired three shots at
them. The first bullet did not hit any
one. but the second killed one of the
beaters, named Brignon, and the third
severely.wounded a gentleman named
Wanger, a pupil at the Saumur cavalry
school. The German officials declare
that a German soldier named Kauf
mann, who was detailed to assist the
forest guards in preventing pouching,
fired the shots. Kaufmann affirms that
he shouted three times for the party to
halt before firing at them. . He believed
that they were on German territory.
The sportsmen declare that they heard
nothing. The officials on both sides of
the frontier are making inquiries into
the shooting. „"**:-*
Bkri.in, Sept. 26.—A official order
has been sent toStrasburg for a detailed
report of the frontier affair. . Commis
saries have gone to ascertain: the exact
spot where Keeper Brignon and Officer
Wanger were standing when Kauffman
fired. The frontier line where the
shooting occurred is very irregular and
apt to mislead any one. - Count Herbert
Bismarck, secretary of the y foreign
office, has sent a friendly note '. to the
French ;•'■ ainbassy •' suggesting an early,
communication of the results of the

there and while at breakfast was recog
nized by a gentleman who arrived at
the hotel from Adelaide the following
day. They were both sitting togethe**
at the same table at breakfast. Neale
did not recognize his table companion
and spoke without reserve as to where
he came from. Neale also spoke about
certain political occurrences in Coventry
which were quite familiar to at least
one of the guests and the Adelaide
traveler took an opportunity to apprize
tlie hotel keeper who Neale was. A re
ward of $5,000 was offered for his arrest,
Neale acknowledged he was the mail
and he was soon in the custody of the
